a breath of fresh air is the need of the hour

Thank God! At last there is a breath of fresh air- we are looking forward to India coming forward with energy and good cheer to spread the joy of young, practical governance.
Is this a mirage? We hope not. If it is, then all our flamboyant hopes will lick dust. Actually what are we hoping for? Not a bribe free India, nor a 100% above the poverty line population. I think we are hoping for a way of thinking and planning for the future, which is free from party bondage and age old ideologies, hierarchy and red tapism.
Some tell me that the youngsters are going to make mistakes! so havent the stalwarts made mistakes also? The unpardonable kind of mistakes? Have they not sold our country cheap? So cheap, that now today, there are no takers for anything Indian? Does it really help to know that the stalwarts have been making the same old mistakes all the years down; India became independent in 1947, and since then, we have been a melange of mistakes and heinous crimes. If I have to define my country, whom I love from the bottom of my heart, I will say it like this-" A beautiful country with beautiful people gone haywire because of a handful of bureaucrats and politicians who are so used to promoting their own ends, they forget when to stop for the larger good of the nation."
So as I was saying, I am very very hopeful of a positive turn in the tide which will propel us towards better governance, optimal welfare and minimal malpractices.
